This group is not intended as a sales forum for Rational tools. The purpose of the Huntsville Rational User Group is to increase awareness of the Unified Modeling Language (UML) and the Rational Unified Process (RUP) for round-trip software engineering and how using these notation processes provide tremendous benefits in all areas of software planning and development. The intent is to facilitate group discussion of the process and its benefits and to provide a network for community support, education, and sharing.
Rational user groups discussions encompass Object-Oriented software architecture, design, and development using UML tools and RUP. Topics will include discussion of various processes and the benefits gained in all areas of software planning and development. Rational products include those acquired by IBM, such as Telelogic, as well as those developed by IBM. Other tools Rational provides are for requirements gathering, testing, configuration management, database design, and many others. Some of the tools open for discussion are listed below:
- Enterprise Architecture
- Telelogic Tau
- Telelogic DOORS
- Tivoli Business Service Manager
- Tivoli Change and Configuration Management Datase
- Tivoli Data and Application Security
- Tivoli Data Warehouse
- Rational Rose

There are many more tools than listed here and good software development techniques can be applied using any notation tool available. Join the Huntsville Rational User Group and request presentations on the specific technologies of interest to you.
